Node.js Panel Discussion

This month we're going to have a panel style discussion, piggy backing off of Gary's suggestion, where participants will provide a little more info about their company, how they're using Node.js or why they're considering it. We'll also look at the current state of Node.js from an adoption and maturity point of view and open things up for any topics that the group would like discuss.

List of people/companies who we have lined up currently includes:

  • David Greenstein from Kibits
  • Alex Nazerian from Kutout
  • Jesse Streb on Kaymbu
  • Angel Municio from PlannedUp
  • Eddy Wong from Wanderu

    Just a tiny bit of follow up on the discussion: Regarding control of your app's flow. Given that (nested > 2 === myFirstApp), the panel mentioned "promises", "node.flow", and maybe "async", and others. There are many out there (I remember using "step" a year ago). I'm not looking for answers 100%, but instead asking: "Is this a topic for a talk (s)?" or "Covered previously or Not-so-much of interest!"

      The way we have approached this: start with sync programming, then quickly switch to using callbacks, then read "Async JavaScript: Build More Responsive Apps with Less Code" (it is about 50 pages only) and switch to using async, Q.js and Deferred/Promises. That will solve a lot of problems.

    This is an interesting topic and I would be interested in exploring it further also.

    Thanks to everyone coming out yesterday! Below is a link to the video I referred to last night in which the CTO i.tv mentions that when they looked at what their bottlenecks were and found that it was nginx so they just removed it. (Around 17:00)

    Also, wanted to make a correction to a comment I made; heroku's nginx layer does not do any caching for you. If you want to cache your static files I would suggest using a CDN to serve those static files. If there is anyone out there that is taking advantage of combining / compressing and serving their static files from CDN with node, I would be curious to hear more about what your deploy scripts look like.

    I have no Node.js experience, but would also like to learn. I work in a company that makes it very difficult to bring in server side javascript, and success stories from others would be very interesting to hear.
